Applications are now open for the POGO-SCOR Fellowship Programme, jointly funded by Partnership for Observation of the Global Ocean (POGO) and the Scientific Committee on Oceanic Research (SCOR), is designed to promote training and capacity building leading towards a global observation scheme for the oceans.
- Promote training and facilitate global capacity development
- Advance sustained global ocean observations and their application
- Emerging and low-cost technologies for ocean observations
- Floating litter observations and modelling
- Open and coastal ocean observation, modelling and management
- Data management & time series analysis
- Underwater sound, acoustic observations and modelling
- Optical measurements of living and nonliving particles
- Physical, biological and biogeochemical sensors on floats and gliders
- Fixed-point time-series observations (e.g. contributing to OceanSITES, OBIS, IODE Ocean Data Portal, WOD and/or other shared data systems)
- Large-scale, operational biological observations including biomolecular and biodiversity (e.g. biological EOVs, CPR, OBON and other programmes)
What does the fellowship offer?
- Funding to spend between one and three months at another oceanographic institute, anywhere in the world, to receive training on any aspect of oceanographic observation analyses and interpretation. The fellowship is NOT intended for an academic course of study, or for research.
What is covered?
- International airfare
- Transport from airport to host institute
- Contribution towards living expenses
- The fellowship program is open to scientists, technicians, postgraduate students (preferably of PhD level) and post-doctoral fellows of developing countries and countries with economies in transition and involved in oceanographic work. Applicants must be citizens of developing countries or economies in transition, as defined by the Development Assistance Committee (DAC) of the OECD.
- The main purpose of the program is to advance sustained ocean observations and their applications. Priority is given to applicants in early stages of career development. This fellowship is intended to support training in oceanographic observations, not to learn research techniques. Its main purpose is to advance sustained ocean observations and their applications; it offers the opportunity to visit other oceanographic centres for a short period (1 to 3 months) for training on any aspect of oceanographic observations, analyses, and interpretation.
